I made some post about issues with an iPad Air 2 and my Netgear R7000 Nighthawk running DD-WRT a while ago.
In the meantime with the new DD-WRT builds using the new driver WiFi runs pretty great on all of my devices except the iPad Air 2. Now I tend to believe this is some issue on the Air 2 side.
Anyway it is still not possible to stream TV from my Dreambox to the Air 2 using the Blackbox Pro app. The video will hang every 30s to 1min (an iPhone 6+ now works perfectly fine with the new DD-WRT firmwares with the new driver, as does an iPad Air 1).
I even had a second iPad Air 2 here for testing which showed the exact same issues (while all the time the 6+ was streaming at the same time without any issue).
Now after some more googling I found this thread and despite the thread being about the Air 1 I have a suspicion the issue here might be the same:
It's about the WMM power save feature with the possible solution of disabling it on the router.
I have made the following observations:
* If I turn off WMM completely in DD-WRT then the Air 2 streams just fine, video doesn't hang, however there are some other issues then and the speed in speed tests doesn't go over 30 mbps on average (with WMM enabled over 200 mbps).
* If I switch to A mode (which doesn't support WMM) then also everything is fine (but being in A mode of course also is very slow).
-> So it seems the issue is definitely related to WMM and this WMM power save feautre might really be the reason.
Now the best solution would be to try to turn off WMM power save and leave WMM generally on, but I don't see an option for that.
Is there some way to do that, maybe via command line, or am I just not seeing the option, maybe it is called differently?
wish i could help, but i fall into the #4 category from here

I'd like to know if there has been on update on this topic?
It is possible to disable the power saving in WMM while leaving WMM itself enabled? _________________ Location (urban) - 1x Linksys EA8500 (AP wlan0 & wlan1 enabled)
